NFL Week 16 Outlook; Sunday, Dec. 26, 2021
There are three weeks remaining in the NFL regular season. The season has flown by, but we still have some time to capitalize on betting before the playoffs arise. Week 16 has some tremendous betting opportunities, so let’s start preparing.
Here is your Week 16 betting outlook.
AFC Rematch Between the Bills vs Patriots
Will New England’s run defense bounce back in Week 16? The Buffalo Bills are 8-6 and just a game behind the Patriots in the AFC East. Their postseason hopes depend on a few more wins, and a victory over New England would help their cause immensely. But they have to face the Pats’ third-ranked defense, as well as try to communicate through the noisy Foxboro crowd with Bills Josh Allen, QB of 8th ranked offense.
Last week, the New England Patriots lost to the Indianapolis Colts. The Patriots must fight to stay in charge of their division. This week, the Buffalo Bills are coming to town, looking for a win against New England’s rookie quarterback and his young offense.
This epic AFC rematch between the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills will occur on Sunday. New England beat Buffalo by four points in Orchard Park at the beginning of December.
Can the Bills Offense Succeed Despite the Foxboro Noise?
There are a few NFL venues that are tough for visiting teams. Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass is one of them. The crowd will be loud and it will be hard to hear what they say. This might not be easy for Buffalo Bills offense, especially QB Josh Allen. He has to figure out how to work around this noise. The coach probably already figured this out and talked about it with him during practice all week long too.
The Bills are +2.5 on the road against the Patriots, and 66% of bettors like this side of the line. This is fair because it’s tough to beat a team twice in one season. However, the Patriots played awful against the Colts and allowed 200 yards on the ground.
Bill Belichick typically bounces back after bad coaching performances. Yet, only 34% of bettors like New England at -2.5.
